On a day that begins like any other, she receives a mysterious and unexpected letter bequeathing her a substantial inheritance. She realizes quickly that the letter was sent to the wrong person—but she also knows that she can use her cold-reading skills to potentially claim the money.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[A] captivating and eerie page-turner.” Wall Street Journal
“A perfectly executed suspense tale very much in the mode of Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca." Washington Post
“Imogen Church is a lively and versatile narrator…She captures the vulnerable but determined Hal beautifully…Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Ruth Ware continues to revitalize the traditional mystery for millennial audiences in The Death of Mrs Westaway, for another mystery that functions both as tribute to the genre’s tropes and a playful revisioning of the drawing room mystery.” Crime Reads
“A clever heroine and an atmospheric setting, accented by wisps of meaning that drift from the tarot cards.” Booklist (starred review)
